LOCK THE REVOLVING DOOR BETWEEN CAPITOL HILL AND K STREET
Lifetime ban on Senators and Congressmen becoming lobbyists.
The President is term limited, the House and Senate should be too. We need citizen legislators, not career politicians. Two term limit for newly elected Senators and a three term limit for newly elected Representatives.
NO BUDGET, NO PAY
If Congress misses its budget deadline in any year, then they work without pay for the rest of that year.
BALANCED BUDGET AMENDMENT
Massachusetts has to balance its budget, and so does every family and every business. The federal government should do the same.
43 states, including Massachusetts, have the line-item veto. Congressional spending can’t be controlled without it.
CONGRESSIONAL PAY FREEZE
Members of Congress should get the same pay for the duration of their service.
MANDATORY BLIND TRUSTS FOR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS
An additional safeguard against Congressmen using insider information to enrich themselves.
